Thoughts On My No Spend May

Okay, so only a week late, but you may be wondering how I did with my "No Spend May".
I have to say I did end up buying some things.
I bought some clothes for myself. I needed a new Jacket, Jeans and I also bought one new long sleeve t shirt.... So that makes two long sleeve t shirts I own now :) As well as that I bought two pairs of red shoes from the op shop. One pair to wear, one pair to modge podge like THIS
I also bought some clothes for Koby and some slippers for both the kids.
As for craft stuff, I confess, I did buy a few things as well. Some safety eyes for toys, some calico and some dried lavender.

To count I've taken away at least fifteen bags of clothes and linens which have gone to the op shop. Countless bags of actual rubbish. And to be honest, I'm only half way through the house.
I have completely sorted out Koby's things. Yay. That is why he got some new clothes. Once I could look at everything together it was easy to see what gaps where missing, clothes wise.
I am a third of the way through Zoe's clothes and have set myself a deadline of next weekend to have finished all her stuff.
I have started my clothes but still feel quite overwhelmed so every time I am folding washing, I look at each piece of clothing to see if it stays or goes.

So that's me and my ramble for tonight. I didn't get as much done as I had hoped but I am still happy that I have started. And didn't just do my normal procrastinating that I usually do.

  1. Sounds like a good effort Mel! When I left NZ I was a little bit horrified at the amount of stuff I had and I don't even have kids! I can't blame Rich either - it was all MY Stuff!!

    But it sounds like you're making a solid effort to declutter - go you!
